I finished D2 when it was new and it was a decent actiongame. Having stats and inventory isn't really enough to call a game a roleplaying game though. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. do not only have inventory and stats, it also have decisions and quests. Is it a roleplaying game or not? It have more rpg features than Diablo have at least.

Diablo is a game ultimately focused on gameplay. Equipment is really treated as powerups, experiencepoints are really points, and skill/speed is like every actiongame the required skill to play it.

One shouldn't assume Diablo can offer anything to one who enjoyed a game like Baldur's Gate or Divine Divinity, even if those games looks the same at a first glance.
